Located only 10 minutes from the centre of Nelson Bay and just over 30 minutes from Newcastle, the Worimi Conservation Lands form the largest sand dune system in Australia, covering an area of 4,200 hectares. While the park landscape is well known for the 32 km long beach and mobile sand dunes which climb up to 40 m high, it also includes over 1,800 hectares of lush forest.
There are plenty of ways to enjoy the sand dunes. Get your heart racing with a thrilling ride on the back of a quad bike as part of a guided quad biking tour . Explore the dunes at your own pace by purchasing a beach vehicle permit and steering your way through the desert in a 4WD . Sandboarding across the dunes is also a fantastic way to get acquainted with the unique terrain.
After a visit to the sand dunes, relax by the water and enjoy the magnificent coastal scenery. Several crystal clear rockpools at the water's edge are sprawling with marine life. Kids can explore the shallow waters and get up close to native sea life. Scuba diving at one of the nearby marine parks is another great way to explore the marine area.
A journey through the Worimi Conservation Lands is an extraordinary experience with untouched natural beauty and a large range of activities to be enjoyed.
